RK Automatic Figure 8 Suture Winder
The Automatic Figure 8 Winder is used to wind the suture into the suture card in a figure 8 shape for easy dispensing.
How It Works
The suture card is placed into the nest, with left hand. The un-needled end of the suture is placed between the feed rolls using the thumb and forefinger of the right hand, and is fed automatically into the suture card—forming a figure 8 shape.
The needle will stop once it reaches your fingers. Then, the needle is slid out of the feed rolls, and inserted into the suture card. The feed rolls use very little tension to do this, so as not to damage the suture material or cause injury to the operator’s fingers by the needle.
